Would one of you guys have any pictures or an exploded view of the disc brake / backing plate / emergency brake cable area on a 8.8 Ford Mustang I believe GT500 rear? I've searched on line but can't find anything good. I have these either brass or zinc plated gear sorta looking things?? Not sure what they are for?? I'd like to blast up all these components and assemble to get ready for paint. Thanks!
I must have posted a reply on this post that should have been on a chassis post.
Just ignore me please. LOL
I'd say you're talking about the park brake shoe adjuster.

I agree, Ford used a set of tiny drum brakes for the parking brake on the rear disc. That gear wheel is part of the adjuster, just like on full sized drum brakes.
